Owing to this fact it has been used with cess in curing Nervous complaints and Rheu matism that were invulnerable to drugs It has also been discovered that India Rub ber possesses all the properties valuable ns a ape 111c for Pulmonary complaints and cures many forms of Consumption and Lung dis eases. Combined with Capcine it is unparal leled as a Pain Reliever, whether external . internal. Nearly all the Surgeons have adopted it on account of its great healing properties. The most effectual way of using the article is in the form of a perforated plaster. 1 he extensive use of ordinary Pcrfoiated or Por ons Plasters, is a 'esfirnony to its merit. The only objection ever found with the or dinary Rubbor Porous Plaster is that it acts too slowly—requiring days and continuous wear to relieve pain or to effect a A celebrated Physician of New York, who has long made the medical properties of Rob ber a study has succeeded in making greet improvement in Porous Plaster by introduc ing Capcine, which overcomes all the former objections, causing the Plaster to do in a few froments or hours, that which it former ly required day* Capcine is the most valuable ingredient ever usid us an externalremedy.

A Scene in 'Wa»litngton In Oilier Da y*. From tho Boston Journal. General Babcock, Private Secretary Lucaey, and all of tbe clerks at tbc White House having been summoned to St. Louis, President Grant is Bend ing his executive communications to Congress by bis second son, Mr. U. S. Grant, Jr. Seeing this young man crossing the liotunda yesterday after noon with a message from his father, tbc President, in his band, I was re minded of an incident which occured before my day, but which was nar rated to me by an eye witness. John Quincy Adams had as private secre tary his oldest sou, John Adams; a young man who possessed the irritable temper of bis family without their temperate habits. One evening Mr. liussel Jarvis, who then edited tbe Telegraph, an anti AdamB paper in this city, attended a "drawing room" at tbe White House, escorting his wife and a party of her relatives from Bos ton, who were here on a visit. Mr. Jarvis introduced those who were with him to Mrs. Adams, and they then passed on. Soon afterward they found themselreb opposite to Mr. JolA Adams, who was standing with the Kev. Mr. Stetson. "Who is that lady?" asked Mr. Stelsou as Mrs. Jarvis ap proached. "That," replied Mr. John Adams,iu a tone so loud that the party heard it, "is the wife of one Russell Jarvis, aud if he knew how contempti bly he is viewed in this house they would not be here," The Bostonians at onco paid their parting respects to Mrs. Adams and left the house. Mr. Jnrvis having first ascertained from Mr. Stetson that it was Mr. John Adams who hud insulted them. The next week Mr. Jarvis sent a note to Mr. John Adams, demanding an explanation, by a friend of his,Mr. McLean. Mr. Adams said that lie had no apology to make to Mr. Jarvis, anu wished no correspondence with him— considering his political relations with tlie President, he had no right to be at the drawing room. A week later Mr. John Adams went to the Gapitol to deliver messages to each house of Congress. Having de livered that addressed to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, he was crossing through the Rotunda to ward the Senate, when he was over taken by Mr. Jarvis, who pulled his nose and then slapped bis face. A scuffle eusued, but they were soon parted by Mr. Horsey,a Representative from Maryland. President Adams notified Congress, in n special mcssuge,of the occurrance, and there was a select committee of investigation. Witnesses were exam ined and elaborate reports were drawn up, but neither .the majority nor the minority recommended that any pun ishment be indicted upon Mr. Jarvis. Cause of Dull Times. Ths much talked of redemption act —which ought to be called an act for postponing Redemption indefinitely— has been in force now one year, and the failures during that year foot up 7,740, With liabilities of $201,000,353, while in 1874 the failures were 5,830, with liabilities of $135,239,ooo. It was expected by his friends to accom plish two incompatible things—in crease the volume of the currency anu hasten specie payments, besides reviv ing business, but has done none of the three. It lias resuited in the perm' ent retirement of $lo,7oo,ooo of legt an ders and of about $2o, 000,000 of oank notes, and the temporary withdrawal from circulation of some $10, 000,000 more of legal tenders, a total contrac tion of $3(5,000,000.It has not brought the country any nearer specie pay ments. but by frightening capitalists away from investments, and increas ing the disposition to hoa.d money, it has multiplied tho embarrassments of business, with the result above recor ded. Two years and'a half have pass ed since tho panic, and there ought to he a rapid and marked improvement in every branch of industry and trade. That there is not in great part due to the stupipity of Congress, in allowing 'tself to be controlled by the great ca pitalists of the seaboard cities, who are uoubling their fortunes at the expense of the many.— Erie Observer. liEVNS IN A BARKEL. The Lowell, Mass., "Courier" 6ays: "One day laät week a party iu a whole sale country produce store in this city proposed a guessing match, in regard to the number of pea beans in a barrel of that vegetable. There were several grocers in the «tore,and their estimates varied from 4o,ooo, to 4;ooo,ooo, all giving wild guesses. It was ascertained that there are about 560,ooa pea beans in a full barrel; this result being ob tained by counting the number of beans in a pound weight, and multi plying that by the number of pounds in the barrel. "This of course would give only an approximate number, as tho figure for each pound will, very probably, vary slightly, and tho stated number of pounds in a barrel may also vary. A gentleman of au advanced mathema ticial education, who happened in the store, was asked to guess the number of beans. He reached a result by measuring one bean, and then figuring liow many of the beans could be put in the barrel. He placed the number in the barjel at 2,ooo less 'than the rc suit obtained by the easier method of calculation, and his figurv*s may be even more correct than those by the loose method." WEATHER KURORT. Washington, Feb. 17,1 A. M PROBABILITIES.

OLDTinn POLITICS. llosv Ibvirdj .lolniNon became Attor i»fy General. The late lion. Reverdy Johnson became a member of the United States Senate in 1845, und resigned his seat in 1849 to accept the position of At torney General under President Tay lor. The New York Evenirg Poet describes os follows the circumstance which resulted in appointment: Mr. William Ballard Preston, of Virginia, was from the first an active partisan of General Taylor.and in one of his speeches boasted that he had been the first man in the country to ''mount Old Whiety and show off his paces." As a return for his services to the party and to the President. Gen eral Taylor, with small knowledge of of men, determined to make Preston Attorney among the Whig Benators remonstrat ed, urging Preston's lack of great legal ability and learning,but all to no Taylor was immovable. William 8. Archer. Benator from Virginia finally took the matter in hand, and, calling upon the President, held characteristic conversation with him on the subject. *'I hear," he said, "that you think of making my friend Preston your At torney General." "Yes," replied Taylor, "I do." "Are you aware of the fact," con tinued the Senator, "that an Attorney General must represent the Govern ment in the Supreme Court?" "Of course," said Taylor. "Do you know that he must there meet Daniel Webster and Reverdy Johnson as opposing ceunsel?" "Certainly," replied Taylor; "what of that?" "Nothing, except that they will make a-fool of your Attorney General." Without another word, the Virginia Senator took his leave, but he bad made the desired impresison. Preston was appointed to another place, and Reverdy Johnson became Attorney General. General. Hi* advisers purpose: General yews. The Centennial bill was signed by the President "with a pen made of a quill from the wing of au American eagle." The steamer Golden Gate was cut through by the ire and sunk at Stuy vesant'a, on the Hudson, near Albany, Thursday night. Loss ten thousand dollars, The House Committee on Pacific Railroads made some progress yester day in disposing of the Texas-Pacific Railroad bill, and will probably bo ready for final action at its meeting to morrow. A terriflic snow storm with a high wind, ra »eil yesterday at Quebec.— Part of tho roof of the Government building was carried off, and two dwellings were blown down. All the railroads were blocked by the snow. The schooner John Henry, from Baltimore for Philadelphia, with 8600 bushels of corn, was run into and sunk by tho steamer George Appolo off Thomas Point, in tho Chesapeake, on Monday night. The captain and crew of the schooner were picked up and taken to Norfolk. Colonel Cook, of General Babcock's counsel, who is in Washington, called upon the President yesterday, and in formed him of the receipt of telegrams from 8t. Louis, stating that the gener al opinion was that the case against Babcock was a failure, and the evi dence insufficient to convict. on A LIVING DEATB. A Man with a Broken Back Llfelesa from ttie Waist Down. Lost October, Judge Nites Taylor, a wealthy merchant of Smethport, McKean county, fell from the rear door of his iesidence, a distance of eighteen feet, breaking bis back. It was thought he would die in a few days, but he is still living and no fears are entertained of his speedy death.— Ilis spinal column was dislocated a (little above the centre of its length. Until Dr. Freeman ingeniously re placed it, he suffered great pain in the broken column. Since then the pain 1ms ceased, but he lias no feeling #f any kind below the fracture. His stomach iscuriously affected, a portion of its functions, or rather, its energies, has been destroyed so that even when acting on light food its operations are slow, and to a certain extent, uncer tain. Whenever he partakes of stron ger food than prepared milk or gruel, as iiis appetite frequently tempts him to do, despite of all previous experi ence, he suffers severe pain all around that portion of his body above» line across and intersecting tbe point of injury. In other words, so far as feel ing and other sensation are concerned he seems to have been literally broken in two parts, and while one third of kis body is as thoroughly alive as ever the lower two thirds are as dead ns though buried in the grave. His men tal faculties are as clear as ever. To Keep Cider Sweet. The editor of tho New England Farmer endorsed the following mode of preserv ing eider sweet for five years : '' Leash and filter the cider through pure sand, after it has worked and fermented and before it has soured. Put no alcohol or other substances with it. Be tho vessels you put it in aro perfectly clean and sweet. After it is leached or hiltered, put it in barrels or casks filled, leaving no room for air; bung them tight and keep it whero it wont frotee till February or March, then put it into champagne bottles filled, drive the corks n Tho best cider is late i • n it is as cold as can that and wire the made, or tf be and not freeze. Gov. Hardin, of Missouri, says that under no circumstances will be be a candidate for re-election.
